    Configuring external SSO solution (LDAP)

    Brendan Farragher Newbie

      I would like to plug in a custom, java based SSO solution to the JBoss Portal that authenticates against LDAP and retrieves roles from a database after authentication is successful (these classes are already developed, and I want to reuse them).

      I am looking for a hook into the portal that will allow me to plug in my custom classes to authenticate a user and retrieve roles. Is there a configuration file that will allow me to plug in a custom implementation (wrapper class/interface api) for user authentication and role processing?

      From what I have been able to see, the identity configuration files underneath the jboss-portal.sar/conf/identity directory have something to do with this approach, but I do not understand how to configure the custom classes.

      Can somebody explain how to do this?

      Thank you.
